This dictionary is a handy tool for students of the history of the People's Republic of China. It contains information on most things one needs to know about the PRC. The selection of the entries demonstrates a thorough familiarity with the People's Republic and an acquaintance with western literature in this area since World War II. The facts in the vast majority of the entries are carefully weighed and the data are, by and large, accurate. For the most part, interpretations are objective and well balanced, reflecting the author's erudition and honesty. These qualities are essential for any reputable scholarship. One should also admire the author's conscientious and consistent use of the Pingyin system to render Chinese proper nouns. It avoids the unnecessary confusion over Chinese names and saves the user much time.
